Excellent article on Entrepreneur.com by Simon Cohen, founder of Global Tolerance. He gave his business away.
He elaborates on his three reasons for his OLE (Open Leadership Exercise):
1. Traditional Exit Strategies are Broken
“ For any entrepreneur, putting your life’s work in the hands of a strategy that succeeds only one in four times is flawed. “
2. Values have Value
“It’s amazing to me how many companies express certain values, but when it comes to exit, those values are left at the door. In a world of discerning customers, this is a disaster for brand and customer loyalty — and the long-term value of the company. “
“…too many people confuse money as the ends rather than the means. For the most part, we want to be happy. To make a difference. To live a life of meaning.”
The whole (brief) article is worth reading.
